    Yes, I am boasting. I have three sets FINISHED. (Darn it, this means I have to go work on my sheep...)

    Doing much faster than me :cry: I guess I need to get a move on. I have almost finished my first set completely, but I think I have found another that I would like to make. Man, you're fast!

    Nah, I'm not fast. They're 3 inch blocks and came together quickly. I actually had several uninterrupted hours of work time this afternoon, so was able to assembly line it. :) You'll laugh at this Sandpat, but I'm scared to show them off! I free handed the eggs, and created my own chicken pattern for 12. If I ever finish my sheep I will try to come up with one more different set. (I made 3 sets, 2 are the same pattern.) I want to do another block that is either tall, or long, like a line of chickens. We'll see. Once I find my camera, I'll post a picture. I tried to with my cell phone, but it didn't turn out well

    ----
    I didn't post all 12 chickens, as frankly, all 12 staring at me was a bit creepy. I thought in terms of a large sampler quilt, a chicken face looking out could be fun.

    The chicken's comb folds down, and can be pinned, to allow for sewing into the actual quilt. I tried to leave at least .25 inch around all the details. As the one picture shows, all the beaks do open, where it reveals a movable tongue. All the felt is red glitter, I wanted the bird to have bling!!

    Im afraid the eggs are not too funky, funny, but not too funky. (I think real cracked eggs smell a bit funky, lol.) I sewed all the eggs by hand.

    BRT...those are the cutest!!! That chicken face is soo clever, aren't you the smart one! Why didn't I think of that??? I love the egg too! Freehanded was the best way to do that, don't ya' think?

    Thanks for the link Cathy...we all need inspiration!


    PamG..I'm putting you down, glad to have you join us! And I think that (well, I'm hoping) the chicken is one of those breeds that totally molts...some do. He really would be cold around here!
